In modern automobiles, numerous types of sensors fulfill many important tasks ranging from engine performance and passenger safety to comfort and vehicle dynamic behavior. The need for sensors is continuously growing. Earlier, sensors were analog devices that had very few applications in automobiles; but today’s sensors mainly utilize digital technology; which means better in efficiency and sensing performance. For example, on an average, in engine control applications, the number of sensors used has increased from approximately ten in 1995 to more than thirty in 2010. Future of automotive sensor is highly dependent on sensor technologies such as MEMS sensor, wireless sensor, radar, and many more; out of which MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems sensors) is the most promising sensor technology. It is about to rule the automotive sensor world.

The revenue for the automotive sensor market [ ] is expected to grow from $14.5 billion in 2011 to $20.70 billion by 2016 at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2011 to 2016.
